James K. Wight received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in civil engineering from Michigan State University in 1969 and 1970, respectively, and his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois in 1973.

He has been a professor of structural engineering in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at the University of Michigan since 1973.

He teaches undergraduate and graduate classes on the analysis and design of reinforced concrete structures.

He is well known for his work in the earthquake-resistant design of concrete structures and spent a one-year sabbatical leave in Japan where he was involved in the construction and simulated earthquake testing of a full-scale reinforced concrete building.

Professor Wight has been an active member of the American Concrete Institute (ACI) since 1973 and was named a Fellow of the Institute in 1984.

He is currently the Senior Vice President of ACI and the immediate past Chair of the ACI Building Code Committee 318. He is also past Chair of the ACI Technical Activities Committee and Committee 352 on Joints and Connections in Concrete Structures.

He has received several awards from the American Concrete Institute including the Delmar Bloem Distinguished Service Award (1991), the Joe Kelly Award (1999), the Boise Award (2002), the C.P. Siess Structural Research Award (2003 and 2009), and the Alfred Lindau Award (2008).

Professor Wight has received numerous awards for his teaching and service at the University of Michigan including the ASCE Student Chapter Teacher of the Year Award, the College of Engineering Distinguished Service Award, the College of Engineering Teaching Excellence Award, the Chi Epsilon-Great Lakes District Excellence in Teaching Award, and the Rackham Distinguished Graduate Mentoring Award.

He has received Distinguished Alumnus Awards from the Civil and Environmental Engineering Departments of the University of Illinois (2008) and Michigan State University (2009).

James G. MacGregor, University Professor of Civil Engineering at the University of Alberta, Canada, retired in 1993 after 33 years of teaching, research, and service, including three years as Chair of the Department of Civil Engineering.

He has a B.Sc. from the University of Alberta and an M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Illinois. In 1998 he received a Doctor of Engineering (Hon) from Lakehead University and in 1999 a Doctor of Science (Hon) from the University of Alberta.

Dr. MacGregor is a Fellow of the Academy of Science of the Royal Society of Canada and a Canadian Academy of Engineering Fellow.

A past President and Honorary Member of the American Concrete Institute, Dr. MacGregor has been an active member of ACI since 1958. He has served on ACI technical committees including the ACI Building Code Committee and its flexure, shear, and stability subcommittees and the ACI Technical Activities Committee.

This involvement and his research have been recognized by honors jointly awarded to MacGregor, his colleagues, and students.

These included the ACI Wason Medal for the Most Meritorious Paper (1972 and 1999), the ACI Raymond C. Reese Medal, and the ACI Structural Research Award (1972 and 1999). His work on developing the strut-and-tie model for the ACI Code was recognized by the ACI Structural Research Award (2004).

In addition, he has received several ASCE awards, including the prestigious ASCE Norman Medal with three colleagues (1983).

Dr. MacGregor chaired the Canadian Committee on Reinforced Concrete Design from 1977 through 1989, moving on to chair the Standing Committee on Structural Design for the National Building Code of Canada from 1990 through 1995.

From 1973 to 1976 he was a member of the Council of the Association of Professional Engineers, Geologists, and Geophysicists of Alberta.

At the time of his retirement from the University of Alberta, Professor MacGregor was a principal in MKM Engineering Consultants. His last project with that firm was the derivation of site-specific load and resistance factors for an eight-mile-long concrete bridge.

Preface to Reinforced Concrete Mechanics and Design eBook

Reinforced concrete design encompases both the art and science of engineering. This book presents the theory of reinforced concrete design as a direct application of the laws of statics and mechanics of materials.

It emphasizes that a successful design not only satisfies design rules but is capable of being built in a timely fashion for a reasonable cost and should provide a long service life.

Philosophy of Reinforced Concrete: Mechanics and Design

A multitiered approach makes Reinforced Concrete: Mechanics and Design an outstanding textbook for a variety of university courses on reinforced concrete design.

Topics are normally introduced at a fundamental level and then move to higher levels where prior educational experience and the development of engineering judgment will be required. The analysis of the flexural strength of beam sections is presented in Chapter 4.

Because this is the first significant design-related topic, it is presented at a level appropriate for new students.

Closely related material on the analysis of column sections for combined axial load and bending is presented in Chapter 11 at a somewhat higher level, but still at a level suitable for the first course on the reinforced concrete design. Advanced subjects are also presented in the same chapters at levels suitable for advanced undergraduate or graduate students.

These topics include, for example, the complete moment versus curvature behavior of a beam section with various tension reinforcement percentages and the use strain-compatibility to analyze either over-reinforced beam sections or column sections with multiple layers of reinforcement.

More advanced topics are covered in the later chapters, making this textbook valuable for both undergraduate and graduate courses and serving as a key reference in design offices.

First Design Course:

Chapters 1 through 3 should be assigned, but the detailed information on loading in Chapter 2 can be covered in a second course.

The information on concrete material properties in Chapter 3 could be covered with more depth in a separate undergraduate course.

Chapters 4 and 5 are extremely important for all students and should form the foundation of the first undergraduate course. The information in Chapter 4 on moment vs. curvature behavior of beam sections is important for all designers, but this topic could be significantly expanded in a graduate course.

Chapter 5 presents a variety of design procedures for developing efficient flexural designs of either singly-reinforced or doubly-reinforced sections.

The discussion of structural analysis for continuous floor systems in Section 5-2 could be skipped if either time is limited or students are not yet prepared to handle this topic.

The first undergraduate course should cover Chapter 6 information on member behavior in shear and the shear design requirements given in the ACI Code.

Discussions of other methods for determining the shear strength of concrete members can be saved for a second design course. Design for torsion, as covered in Chapter 7, could be covered in a first design course, but more often is left for a second design course.

The reinforcement anchorage provisions of Chapter 8 are important material for the first undergraduate design course. Students should develop a basic understanding of development length requirements for straight and hooked bars, as well as the procedure to determine bar cutoff points and the details required at those cutoff points.

The serviceability requirements in Chapter 9 for control of deflections and cracking are also important topics for the first undergraduate course.

In particular, the ability to do an elastic section analysis and find moments of inertia for cracked and uncracked sections is an important skill for designers of concrete structures.

Chapter 10 serves to tie together all of the requirements for continuous floor systems introduced in Chapters 5 through 9. The examples include details for the flexural and shear design and full-span detailing of longitudinal and transverse reinforcement.

This chapter could either be skipped for the first undergraduate course or be used as a source for a more extensive class design project. Chapter 11 concentrates on the analysis and design of columns sections and should be included in the first undergraduate course.

The portion of Chapter 11 that covers column sections subjected to biaxial bending may either be included in a first undergraduate course or be saved for a graduate course.

Chapter 12 considers slenderness effects in columns, and the more detailed analysis required for this topic is commonly presented in a graduate course.

If time permits, the basic information in Chapter 15 on the design of typical concrete footings may be included in a first undergraduate course.

This material may also be covered in a foundation design course taught at either the undergraduate or graduate level.
